Hey FabFree! I have news of changes and new gifts… the new year is filled with new changes for everyone!

FAGA‘s New Free Subscriber Group

FAGA recently moved its group over to a new and free subscriber system. The old group no longer exists. This is good news because the subscriber is a completely free service and it doesn’t take up any of our limited group spaces! Just hit the subscribe button at the store for free to get all of their current and past group gifts. To find the gifts, you are looking for the little “exclusive pack” signs under each hairstyle vendor. I am wearing Ellie, the new subscriber gift for the month of January. The hairstyle includes a HUD of exclusive colour options.

Lovely New Gifts @ Opulein

Opulein is becoming one of my new favourite creators. You all know I am a makeup addict, and they make some really lovely makeup appliers and BOM makeup for Lelutka Evo and EvoX. I am showing two of their group gifts today, which are the single tone of lipstick and eyeshadow I am currently wearing. Opulein‘s VIP group currently costs 100L to join.

Sizes Included (Lipstick)

  • HD Applier for Lelutka Evo & EvoX

Sizes Included (Eyeshadow)

  • BOM for Lelutka EvoX

Thanks for reading, FabFree!

Rest in Peace, My Baby Boy

Rest in Peace, My Baby Boy

Ok FabFree… this post is about to get emotional. In this post, I will be talking about loss and grief so be prepared for that before reading.  Last month, I lost my beloved furbaby in real life. It was heartbreaking for me, as I had an incredibly special and close bond with my cat. It really broke me in half, but I have been working through my grief.  Apparently, there have been a lot of people in SL lately who have lost their cats and other pets in recent times. For those of you out there who may be going through this, just know you are not alone. I will never forget him as long as I live in both worlds and I will love him until the day I die.

Little Angels

The incredible creator Dalriada Delwood of MOoH! created a set of  “ghost” kitties for those of us who have lost our cats. I thought it was so beautiful that MOoH! came out with these, as it is a lovely little reminder of my beloved little guy who I can carry with me around SL. There are a variety of types of cats available in this set. At Next Up, you can play to win an angelic cat in different colourings and breeds for only 50L per play. Just wait for the cat you want to pop up and it’s yours for a low price.

This Next Up set was made for all of us who lost our furbabies. I always feel so touched and warm when creators make things like this for us. It just provides that little bit of comfort we need in our darkest hours. I do have a few more deals and free offers to show you as well, so keep reading below.

The Whole Place is On Sale

Opulein is having an awesome sale until November 30th. The sale is marking some sort of closing- I believe Opulein is moving to a new location after the end of November so the sale marks the transition. EVERYTHING in the store is on sale for 25 Lindens. Even better, when you join their free group you save another additional 5L off each item. For 20L a piece, some may wish to buy the whole store because their makeup is simply fantastic. I bought a set of eyeshadows and lipsticks which I love dearly.

Sizes Included (lipstick)

  • Lelutka EvoX – BOM

Sizes Included (eyeshadow)

  • Lelutka EvoX – BOM
  • Lelutka EvoX – HD Applier
  • Lelutka Evo
  • Genus

Another present…

Finally, I am wearing another group gift from FAGA that was released over the Black Friday weekend. This hairstyle comes in an exclusive colour pack. The hair ties only come in bright pink. It’s a great style and FAGA is so generous for giving us all of these awesome hairstyles! FAGA‘s VIP group is temporarily free to join so pick up all the great gifts while you can!

Blessings. Thank you for listening. 💓

The FabFree Annual Free(ish) Hair Roundup – Part 1

Yay!  FabFree!  IT’S TIME!

Time for what, you ask?  Well… it’s time for our annual Free(ish) hair round up!  If you’ve not seen one of our hair posts before, strap in and get yourself a beverage because we pulled out all the stops this year to bring you NOT JUST ONE, but two posts of free, group gift, and dollarbie hair that you can get right now.  This year we’ve got over 200 hairstyles in this post alone, with just as many (if not more) coming tomorrow.  Yeah.  I know.  It’s a doozy.

Please be sure to thank the FabFree bloggers for their hard work in collecting, photographing, and documenting each hairstyle so that you have a comprehensive guide to free and affordable hair around the grid.  They deserve your kudos because they jumped on this project with wild abandon.

Shameless plug here, but as you well know – FabFree bloggers are not paid for their services.  However, if ever you feel like donating and showing your appreciation, make your way over to the FabFree Info Hub and drop a few coins in the piggy banks.  We do appreciate it.  We also super love comments on our posts!

Digital Detox

Coming Soon

Hey Fabs! I have a quick post today because technology has not been treating me kindly this week. Time for a day at the beach to get away from social media and my devices that refuse to cooperate!

Moonie

First off, my hair is a free gift from the Midnight Madness Board at .Olive. It’s a full fatpack, and it includes multiple colour HUDs, including some ombre bright colours colour HUDs that I just loved. No group is needed to play this Midnight Madness Board, so the hairstyle is totally free.

Gold, Chains, Hearts

Secondly, my pretty earrings are a Midnight Madness Board prize at Yomi. Yomi‘s group is required to play the boards, which costs 100L. You can read all the details about the MM Boards at Yomi in my previous post here. Check out the detail of these earrings! They are one of my favourite pieces I have won from their boards! This pair of earrings come in gold.

Elinore

Coming Soon

Finally, these AMAZING heels are on a special promo for 77L at [WellMade] for their 7th Anniversary. This deal is 2 little Lindens over the FabFree budget… hopefully it will not break your bank. I think this is an amazing deal because the shoes include a hud of 40 colour options to customize each part of the shoe. You can use the hud to change each individual piece – including the heel, the sole, the fringe, and the main part of the shoe – to different colours or metals. They also have everything else in the store on sale for 50% off until the end of the month. The limited-time promo on the shoes ends on August 31st, when the anniversary sale and celebrations come to a close.

Sizes Included (Shoes)

  • Reborn
  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Kupra

Have fun, FabFree!

Sweet Fifteen

Sweet Fifteen

After putting together this innocent and pretty look, I feel like I’m ready to go back to a coming-of-age debutante ball or a high school formal. Whatever it is, it looks like some celebratory occasion. Happy Sweet Fifteen, FabFree!

Everything in my photo today is from FabFree at Fifteen. I am still basking in all the pretty things the designers made for us.

  • The braided, double-bun, ginger hairstyle is a free gift for FabFree group members at Butterfly Kiss Boutique. It comes in two options: one has a bright orange tone that fades into darker red tones (shown here), and one with dark roots that fade to the bright orange. The hairstyle is unrigged, so you can move it to fit your head perfectly.
  • The beautiful dress is a FabFree at Fifteen exclusive available at Ruxy, and it only costs 69L. It’s stunning! It is sized for Maitreya Lara & Petite and Legacy & Perky. This item includes an extensive colour change hud that allows you to change the colours of the dress and the lace.
  • My pretty mesh nails are a free gift for FabFree group members at Kinky Pinky. They fit Maitreya, Kupra, Reborn, Legacy, Belleza, Alice, Kalhene, and Slink. These include a texture change hud with 6 bright colours.
  • The gorgeous trellis with flowers and lights is the full-priced offering from .Lunaria.. It costs 100L.

There’s No Good Way to Say Goodbye

Coming Soon

To a Great and Supporting Creator

As I write this post I can feel myself tearing up. .EscalateD., which is one of my favourite stores of all time, is closing its doors on July 31st, 2022. .EscalateD. was the first creator to support me as a blogger and I have had the privilege of showing their unique and beautiful hairstyles over the years. .EscalateD. has to have been one of the most generous hair creators to contribute to the freebie community over the years and the store will be missed dearly by her devoted fans. I hope that on whatever journey Dolphin Ayres embarks on after this that she finds great fulfillment and happiness in her RL and SL. ❤

Solaris

I am wearing Solaris today, which is my favourite hairstyle of all time from .EscalateD. It’s so beautiful. I love the detailing in the braids and the stones. This is a classic work from this wonderful creator. The hairstyle includes a style hud and a Universal Colour Hud in naturals and unnaturals colours, which work on all of the hairstyles sold in the store.

Coming Soon

You may be lucky enough to win this hairstyle on the MM Board this month, as this will be your last chance to play these fun boards. Every day, there is a new hairstyle on the Midnight Mania boards which group members can play to win. The .EscalateD. VIP group only costs 25L to join right now. The boards are locking regularly lately. You can also win a tonne of hairstyles on their lucky boards, as well as Universal Colour huds. Being a VIP also gives you access to all of their lovely group gifts. There are more hairstyles available for free for those not in the group as well on lucky boards and mini mania boards that are free for all to play, as well as a few freebies and 5L offers on the wall. Now is your last chance to grab the free offers and group gifts at the store!

Additionally, you may have store credit racked up on your .EscalateD. account. Check your balance using any of the check credit terminals in the store. You only have until the end of July to use up that credit when the store closes. After that, credits will be gone forever. All items in the store are set to a 25% off discount for the closing sale. Fear not, though, .EscalateD. is not gone for good! After the store closes, all of the products will be available for purchase on their Marketplace store.

A final gift

As a parting present, my pretty little necklace is a free gift from Supernatural @ SL19B. It complimented my look well today and I always enjoy a little gift from this talented creator.

That’s all for now, FabFree!

There’s a Little Witch in All of Us

Coming Soon

I love to create a witchy look sometimes, even if I’m not wearing a full witch outfit and broomstick. After all, everyone has a little witch or wizard inside them waiting to come out, right? I know I’m still waiting for my Hogwarts letter!

Witchy

I have two cute freebies to share tonight to help you make your own witchy look.

  • First off, my hairstyle is the free gift from MINA at the Hair Fair. The gift includes a rainbow colour HUD in 5 bright rainbow options. I am wearing the light white rainbow color, which reminds me of bright and silvery unicorn hair!
  • My gothic lipstick is another group gift at Pout! Just join their group for free to grab it. These fit Lelutka EvoX heads and they come in an HD applier of 4 different lipstick options. I am also wearing a set of their free BOM eye shadow for EvoX which I previously blogged here.

Go make some magic, FabFree!

Glam Workout…Without the Working Out

Coming Soon

Hey Fabbies! I have a fun look today of workout clothes and sweat pants meets glam… and I threw in some limes too. Ha!

Magnetic Force

First off, I have two great gifts from Magnetic to show off today, a designer I have not yet had to pleasure to blog until today. They make some amazing products and I had to show you a few of their creations.

  • The pretty eyeshadow and eyeliner is a free gift from Magnetic @ SL19B. These gorgeous eye shadows come in a pack of several colours with liners included in each option. They are BOM layers designed for Lelutka EvoX heads only. This is a new gift at their booth, as they replaced the gift card that was previously there with this eyeshadow set! So go grab the new gift in its place if you haven’t had the chance to get it yet! You have until July 10th to grab it.
  • Magnetic also has these delightful green lime earrings as a free group gift for members of the *Inside Your Inventory* group. You will find these at the Magnetic mainstore and you will need to join the freebie group *Inside Your Inventory* to pick up the gift. The earrings come in silver and gold metal options.

Shoediction

You may have caught these super sexy shoes on a FabFinds post recently, but I just had to show them off to give that extra push because these are an incredible offer! They are a free gift at N-Core if you join the Mesh Body Friends group. The shoes come in white and black. I was very excited to add these to my shoe collection because N-Core makes excellent footwear!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Changing of the Seasons

Changing of the Seasons

Hey FabFree! I can’t believe spring is already over and summer is here… it’s time to move out of these spring clothes and get ready for summer fun! I am soooo pumped for July – you don’t even know how much. The FabFree@15 Event is coming on July 8th, and part of the reason I’ve been posting so much in the last week is to I can prepare to blog our first event! I’m so excited for this summer! So, now I’m back with new post, and this time it’s to show a free hairstyle and some free makeup to keep you going until the event starts. 😉

Back to Hair Fair

It’s time to show more free hair from the Hair Fair! I am wearing the free gift from Ade today. The “Lia” hairstyle includes a style-changing hud, different sizes to accommodate different head sizes, and several colour huds. It’s very cute. 💕You can read more details about the Hair Fair event in my post here.

Lots of New Gifts @ Pout!

The makeup items I am wearing today are all products from Pout! that I recently found out are free.

  • First off, Pout! has some cute new group gifts. I am wearing one of them right now, which is a set of BOM eyeliners in 4 different styles made exclusively for Lelutka EvoX heads. Their group is currently free to join, and there’s a load of past group gifts to pick up as well!
  • Pout! also have some new free gifts on their freebies wall. These require no group join at all. Just buy them for 0L and they are yours. From that lot, I am wearing a new pair of eyeshadows, which are also BOM layers made exclusively for Lelutka EvoX. These come in a bunch of colour options. Both gifts are striking!

Coming Soon

Here’s a fun BOM tip! Make sure that you apply the eyeliners after the eyeshadow. You always want to “layer” your BOM layers on top of each other. You can also re-arrange them by “editing” your outfit and moving them up in the order you want them to appear on your avatar.

Have fun, FabFree!
